The Siberian tigers in China’s Heilongjiang Province all seem to have a bit of a weight issue. However, that might not always be a problem as the facility where the tigers live recently invented a new way to help their tigers shed some pounds. They launched a drone into the air and, since tigers are just big cats, the feisty felines couldn’t help but chase the thing.
Their playday ended when one of fat cats snatched the drone from the air and tried to chew on it. However, since it was a drone and not an eagle, the machine soon started smoking and scared the striped felines away.
Unfortunately, the video of these cute guys that has gone viral might not have the happiest ending. The Australian Broadcasting Company reported that the facility is more of a “tiger farm” than a zoo. A representative from an animal protection agency stated that “these facilities breed tigers for tourist entertainment while they’re alive, and their parts are reportedly used for luxury and medicinal products.”
